Irish mists and Sicilian summer, married.
 
The Knappogue castle in Ireland has been around since the 15th century. In 1966, Mark Edwin Andrews from Texas bought its ruins and restored it with his architect wife. Then, Mark started buying barrels of fine Whiskey from all around the country, maturing them even further, bottling them under the castle’s name. his last release was a 1951 vintage, matured for 36 years, which hardcore Whiskey aficionados consider a holy grail of Irish Whiskey. Now, his son, Mark Andrews III, is a knighted Whiskey maker, offering us lavish limited releases.
 
The Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Marsala Cask Irish Whiskey is an insanely rare delight – only 690 bottles made. It’s a no-fake-color, non-chillfiltered Spirit matured at least for a dozen of years in ex-Bourbon oak barrels, before it was finished in Marco de Bartoli Marsala casks. Marsala is a dry and sweet fortified wine from Sicily, similar to Port, Madeira and Sherry. This triple-distilled Irish Whiskey brings the summer breeze of Sicily to the mysterious mists of Ireland.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. It was St.Patrick who made the shamrock so popular.

james,
Heavy wine notes on the nose. Spicy with a bit of a hazelnut flavor and oak.

Harlan,
This is an interesting bottle! I like it, I find it on the bold side with a bit of a bite. The after taste last a good while and is very pleasant. It is a very nice change of pace dram. I will buy more.

Robert,
A very nice Irish with a nice finish. Just for comparison, Redbreast is a favorite of mine. If you like it, you'll like this.

Gary,
I'd never had a Marsala cask finished whisk(e)y before, and this was clearly Marsala finished. A bit too heavy handed on the finish for my taste - although not offputting.
